Prov.4:7 (KJV) Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Prov.21:16 (KJV) The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.
If there is anything we require to keep abreast and enjoy quality and victorious lives wherever we find ourselves in this high tech and fast paced world, it is the matchless, manifold wisdom of God!
The word of God says that he who wanders from the way of understanding shall remain in obscurity- in the congregation of the dead. Very alarming!
…demands of life increase in complexity from age to age; and I sure need to step up to a higher level of soundness of mind to remain in the picture…
Life could be much sweeter and easier. We could be richer, healthier, have better relationships, enjoy more peaceful lives, avoid more unnecessary pains and of course, still be heaven bound all by the wisdom of God!
Wisdom is the Principal thing. Using finance as an analogy, it is the Principal which yields profit or Interest over a period of time. Little wonder why the word of God says:
Wisdom is good with an inheritance and by it there is profit to them that see the sun (Eccl.7:11)!
Surely, wisdom it is which makes any inheritance profitable and even life worth the living!
Moreover, Wisdom offers better security than riches, because wisdom has riches and more importantly, gives life to its possessor. (Eccl.7:12)
Also, Wisdom is superior to exposure- it makes an everyday man stronger than ten mighty men in the city!(Eccl.7:19)
Doubtless, Wisdom is a virtue to be desired of God!
Lord, demands of life increase in complexity from age to age; and I sure need to step up to a higher level of soundness of mind to remain in the picture.
Lord, please grant that I grow in wisdom with every increasing life’s demand so that through it all, I remain abreast and ahead of this age, always coming out victorious with an upper hand over the challenges of this present times. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
